Volunteers are being sought to help clean up Dussindale Park.

Graffiti and fly tipping was raised as a concern at the last public meeting of Thorpe St Andrew's safer neighbourhood and policing team.

As a result, an action day has been organised with Thorpe St Andrew Town Council to clean up the park, paths and trails at Dussindale Park, in Pound Lane, on St George's Day tomorrow (Wednesday, April 23).

Town clerk Steven Ford said: 'We are appealing for volunteers to come forward to help us take on the task of getting the park thoroughly cleaned up.

'Anyone willing to help should call the town council office on 01603 701048 or email info@thorpestandrew-tc.gov.uk for more details.'
